How to Create Greater Alignment with Yourself and Others with Lavender Gems

Alignment. It’s the spiritual version of having all your ducks in a row. And it feels great: you feel alive, energized and centered. But for many individuals, alignment isn’t a regular experience, and this can negatively impact how you feel, think and interact with others. Something’s always “off.”

There are many energetic ways to change this, and using lavender gems is a gentle, yet powerful practice to help you create greater alignment. Here’s why.

What does it mean to be in alignment?

We all have a special calling. It’s something meant just for you. It’s like having a homework assignment  – except it never feels like homework. It feels energizing.

That’s because when you’re in alignment, your actions and thoughts line up with this inner calling, working together to create an authentic life. But when we live out of alignment, life begins to feel like homework and one tiring, feet-dragging experience.

Why is it difficult to be in alignment with yourself?

In today’s modern world, alignment is challenging. There’s so much pressure to meet lots of different expectations. It’s all very distracting, and instead of focusing on who we are, and what we’re called to do, we make desperate attempts to be like everyone else.

Another reason why alignment is so challenging is that we get stuck in limiting beliefs. And until we heal and release them, it’s hard to live in alignment.

Because this misalignment occurs gradually, it’s hard to notice it. However, when you’re out of alignment, there are some pretty telling signs.

11 signs you’re out of alignment

We humans are very good at adapting – even to pain and discomfort. Therefore, we can live out of alignment for a long time and never even realize it. Do any of these signs sound familiar to you?

If so, there’s a good chance you’re not living in alignment with your true self.

  1. You have a nagging feeling that something’s off
  2. You feel limited, unfulfilled and disconnected
  3. You feel like your past mistakes are what’s holding you back
  4. You don’t have much – or any – direction
  5. You know you’re not living according to your true purpose
  6. You feel like you have stagnant energy inside
  7. You feel fatigued
  8. You experience irregular breathing because of anxiety, anger or stress
  9. You struggle to concentrate because your mind is scattered and distracted
  10. You feel sad or even depressed, especially because you believe you’ve lost something
  11. You feel irritable toward other people

These contrasting feelings are very uncomfortable and as strange as it sounds, that’s a good thing. That’s because your inner wisdom isn’t giving up on you. It wants you to know that you’re out of alignment.

Knowing this wisdom is power. When you know you’re out of alignment, you can take steps to replace disconnection with the connection, dissatisfaction with content, and fatigue with new vim and vigor. That’s where lavender gems come in.

The power of lavender gems for alignment

Lavender(violet) is the color of the crown chakra – your center for deeper connection, not only with the greater Life Force but also with yourself. And lavender is especially indicated for understanding yourself better.

Because lavender helps you become more self-aware, it also helps you to move through life with greater certainty and centeredness.

Lavender gems are multidimensional

Along with aquamarine, citrine, and quartz, lavender gems offer multi-dimensional healing. This means lavender gems are versatile multitaskers that can profoundly influence many areas of your life experience.

Not only can they boost your emotional, mental and spiritual health, but they can also bring more balance and harmony into your life.

Another way lavender supports alignment is by helping you develop greater flexibility and creativity – exactly what you need to get out of a rut, recognize your true self, and live a more authentic life.

4 ways to use lavender gems for greater alignment

Gemstones may be cute and trendy, but they’re powerful conduits for healing. So, it’s always a good idea to approach them with both respect and gratitude. It’s also important to use them correctly so they can support your healing.

Here are four ways to use lavender gems to get back into alignment and be your most authentic self again – or maybe for the first time.

  • Wear lavender gems around your neck

A lavender gem necklace is anything but jewelry. Instead, it’s a powerful tool that quietly works with you, both day and night. If you prefer not to wear it while you sleep, place it near your body. This way, you can still connect to the healing energy of the lavender gems, and deepen your connection with yourself.

  • Wear a lavender gem tisrati

If you need mental clarity, and you’re struggling with both an overactive mind and an unsettled emotional body, a lavender gem tisrati is a powerful tool, too.

If you have a lavender necklace, place it on your head like a crown. This practice helps to increase awareness and support greater alignment.

  • Single gem crown chakra

Even if you don’t have a lavender necklace, you can still use this powerful gemstone. One simple practice is to lie down in the resting yoga pose, Savasana.

While resting, place the lavender gem above your head. Then, picture a white light enveloping you while you meditate on your connection with your innermost self and the Higher Power (or however you identify with the Divine).

  • Lavender clusters

When our living space is messy and full of clutter, it’s hard to think straight. So, you can only imagine how hard it is to experience mental clarity, connection, and insight when the mind is cluttered with negative energy like worry, fear, anger, anxiety and more.

Lavender has the ability to purify and transmute this negative energy. One way you can do that is to create a lavender cluster in your room to neutralize this energy and balance your living space again. It’s like giving your physical space a spiritual tidy up.

Living out of alignment is discouraging, disheartening and tiring. It puts you at odds with yourself and with others. Using lavender gems can gently increase your self-awareness and self-understanding, and help you to create greater alignment.

9 Female Goddesses to Inspire You to be a Powerful and Loving Woman

For thousands of years, people have turned to mythological and spiritual figures for inspiration and guidance. And even though we are modern people living in the 21st century, the magic and beauty of goddesses is still alluring, uplifting and sometimes even life-changing.

If you’re searching for powerful women to inspire you, here are nine amazing goddesses who provide powerful feminine energy to those who ask. Click on each of their names for an image of the Goddess.

Artemis

Artemis is the Greek goddess of the hunt and moon. So, Artemis is often depicted carrying a bow and arrow, with a crescent moon resting on her head. If you’re searching for something in life, Artemis can help you stay true to your goals and reach them.

But Artemis is so much more than a huntress. She’s also the guardian of the forests, wild places, and women. She can help you navigate even your wildest dreams. After all, she knows the wilderness well.

Bast

Bast is an Egyptian goddess who is usually depicted as a cat, or as a woman with a cat’s head. And while women turn to Bast for many things, she is especially revered as a fertility goddess.

In ancient times, women suffering from fertility problems made offerings to Bast. If you have an affinity for cats and also want to focus on your fertility, Bast may be a good goddess to turn to.

Gaia

Gaia is either the personification of the earth itself or the goddess of the earth. According to Greek mythology, Gaia gave birth to all the gods. And with Gaia, you can see the earth as a nurturing and providing mother instead of an object to exploit.

That’s because Gaia is Mother Earth. Seeing life this way can also help you feel safe, protected and cared for. What’s more, you can draw on Gaia’s strength to tap into your own maternal energy.

Freya

Gracing Norse mythology, Freya is the goddess of love, beauty, sex, and fertility. But what makes Freya special is that she encourages a deep sense of self-awareness in women.

She especially wants you to see the beauty in all things, especially yourself. So, for women who struggle to accept and love themselves, Freya can be both gentle and powerful in guiding them to see their own worth again.

Idun

You’re probably familiar with the Biblical couple, Adam and Eve. But here, we’re talking about Idun and Eve – two women whose story revolves around a special fruit-bearing tree.

Eve ate the forbidden fruit and got cast out of the Garden of Eden. Idun also had a powerful fruit-bearing tree, which offered immortality to those who indulged, and tradition says Idun shared these special fruits with others.

Aging is inevitable, but Idun reminds us that we can retain a youthful spirit and experience fresh renewal anytime. Maybe we just need to trade the mythical apples for Vitamin C-infused oranges and face creams.

Lakshmi

Lakshmi is a Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity, which is why you may see her with gold coins falling from her fingertips. But Lakshmi isn’t just the goddess of financial and material wealth. She also represents spiritual abundance. Therefore, she’s a wonderful goddess to turn to when you want to overcome scarcity mindset and replace it with a more abundant and grateful spirit.

Ostara

This Germanic spring goddess represents the gentle dawn and fresh beginnings. In fact, her name and symbols, such as eggs and rabbits, were adapted into the Christian feast of Easter. For those women who need support to make it through a dark and difficult time, or for people who need to start over, Ostara can lead the way to where the light and new life is.

Parvarti

Parvarti is one of the many forms of the Hindu deity, Shakti, who represents the feminine energy, infusing all life.

The story of Parvarti is amusing and endearing. This determined and devoted goddess tried many tactics to win Shiva’s love. She even turned to solitude and self-mastery to win him over. Thanks to her steadfast love and devotion, Parvarti eventually earned Shiva’s love and helped him take pleasure in life again.

Therefore, Parvarti can be a wonderful mentor for when we’re having trouble opening ourselves up to the pleasures of life. She can also encourage us to continue to choose love even when it’s not always reciprocated, and when we’re not always rewarded for our efforts.

What’s more, Parvarti reminds us that it takes lots of love and devotion to embark on any spiritual journey and that it may take time for us to reap the rewards of our efforts. But like Parvarti, we can be patient and steadfast, too.

Aphrodite

Last, but certainly not least, this famous goddess needs little introduction. She has been depicted countless times over the centuries, and for good reason. This Greek goddess represents love and beauty. In fact, in Greek mythology, other gods thought her beauty could start wars and rivalries between her many admirers.

So, if you want to be more desirable and attractive, invoke Aphrodite. It’s a good way to own your beauty and sexuality with greater confidence.

Coping with the Fear of Rejection

The fear of rejection is very real and it’s no wonder why. Rejection hurts. Plain and simple. And it doesn’t matter if it happens at home, at work, or in other social settings. Rejection is painful, and so we avoid it at all costs. After all, who wants to get hurt? But rejection is inevitable, so it’s a good idea to learn how to overcome the fear of rejection and learn to cope with it when it does happen.

The fear of rejection is millions of years old

We all want to belong. But this isn’t anything new. In an article published by the American Psychological Association, entitled, The pain of social rejection, author Kirsten Weir explains, “As clever as human beings are, we rely on social groups for survival. We evolved to live in cooperative societies, and for most of human history, we depended on those groups for our lives. Like hunger or thirst, our need for acceptance emerged as a mechanism for survival.”

Belonging was essential for survival. That means rejection essentially meant death. But a lot has changed over the course of millions of years. So, you might think our need for belonging isn’t as important anymore.

That’s not the case though. While it’s true that we can all live pretty independent lives and survive on our own now, that doesn’t erase millions of years of evolution. We still want to belong, and rejection prevents this from happening. In short, we still need our tribe no matter what form it takes.

In a way, our fear of rejection had an important role to play: it helped to keep us alive. But that only explains why it is part of the human experience – it doesn’t really explain why it hurts so much, does it?

Why does rejection hurt so much?

Rejection hits us on an emotional and psychological level. Or, does it? Recent research has found that the pain of being rejected actually activates the same brain areas that physical pain does.

Kipling Williams, a professor at the Department of Psychological Sciences at Purdue University, researched social rejection in an article called Ostracism. In his study, participants played a game of cyber frisbee with other volunteers as their brains were being scanned. After all three participants played frisbee together, two players eventually started to play by themselves and exclude one player.

Williams and his team observed something fascinating in the brains of people who were excluded and rejected. They saw that the dorsal anterior cingulate, along with the anterior insula became more active.

Why is this important? Because these are the same two brain regions that get activated when you experience physical pain. In short, emotional pain registers in the brain the same way physical pain does.

And this can help to explain why rejection hurts so much, and why we try to avoid it. After all, through trial and error, we learn what causes physical injury – like touching a hot pan, or mishandling a sharp knife – and we avoid these actions as best we can.

So, it’s understandable that as we experience rejection, we start to avoid behaviors that might invite more rejection. But this is a problem. That’s because these same behaviors are exactly what keeps us from living a wholehearted and authentic life.

How do we try to avoid rejection?

To keep rejection from happening again, we develop unhealthy behavior patterns and mindsets. For example, if you were rejected by a lover, you may become pessimistic about ever finding love again. Or, if you do find yourself in a good relationship, you sabotage it because you’re afraid of being rejected by your new partner.

If your experience of rejection started much earlier in life – from a parent, for example – you may have false beliefs about yourself. You might think you’re unworthy of love and attention, or that you don’t deserve friends. And thoughts like this prevent you from attracting love and attention to yourself. This, in turn, creates even more rejection.

Another common rejection scenario is when you share your thoughts or opinions only to get mocked or excluded. If that’s the case, you might hide the true you in order to fit in.

As you can see, if we desperately try to avoid rejection, we actually create more rejection and less belonging.

So, we have to learn to be ourselves, knowing full well that it could end in rejection. But how can you do that?

How to overcome the fear of rejection

As long as people have preferences, people will welcome what they prefer and reject what they don’t. And the truth is, sometimes that means you and me will get rejected. So, how can we continue, full steam ahead, even with the risk of rejection? Here are two tips to cope with our innate fear of rejection.

  1. You don’t have to take rejection personally

In his inspiring book, The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz, lays out four principles to live by. His second principle is this: Don’t take anything personally.

What does Ruiz mean by this? He teaches that every action that’s directed towards you actually has very little to do with you. In fact, usually, it has nothing to do with you. Instead, it has everything to do with the other person. It has to do with their thoughts, belief system, emotional baggage, personal history and so much more.

And when you apply Ruiz’s principle to rejection, it can transform the entire experience. The truth is, when people reject us, we interpret it as a reflection of our value and our worth.

Rejection doesn’t just mean exclusion. Instead, it means:

  • I’m not lovable
  • I’m not good enough
  • I’m not worthy
  • I’m a loser

But if you don’t take rejection personally, you can see that you were excluded, and continue to believe that you’re lovable, worthy, good enough and anything but a loser.

  1. Rejection might be doing you a favor

This might seem crazy but bear with me. We often think we know what we want and what’s best for us. But that’s not always the case. Instead, and as Gabrielle Bernstein says, “The universe your back.”

But how can rejection be the universe’s way of taking care of you? After all, rejection is painful and makes you feel isolated and alone.

But does it have to?

It’s true: you do get rejected by a group or an individual. But chances are you wouldn’t have been very happy in that group or with that individual anyway.

Therefore, while rejection means you don’t fit into that specific scenario, that doesn’t mean you’re never going to fit anywhere.

Instead, rejection keeps you out of places or situations where you won’t thrive. And it helps you to keep looking for your perfect fit.

Here’s an analogy that might help. There are so many beautiful flowers in our world. And some thrive in the sun; others bloom best in the shade. There are some flowers that need sunny seaside climates, while others can survive the cool temperatures of the snowy Alps.

But you would probably never say that the seaside flower is worthless because it can’t survive in the Alps, or vice versa. So, why should you say that about yourself?

Just because you didn’t “make it” with one crowd or another, doesn’t mean you’re not a beautiful person. It just means, you tried to plant yourself in the wrong garden.

There’s this common saying: Bloom where you’re planted. But let’s take it one step further and infuse it with some powerful intention. Instead, of just blooming where you happen to end up, why not plant yourself where you know you will bloom best?

The payoff for accepting rejection

Even if you don’t take rejection personally, it can still hurt. And even if you compare yourself to a beautiful flower who simply tried to plant herself in the wrong garden, rejection hurts yet again.

So, have you really gained anything? The answer is a resounding yes. There is a payoff when you accept that rejection can and will happen. And here it is:

When you stop running away from rejection, you also stop running away from love, intimacy, and connection. But if you keep trying to avoid rejection, you avoid connecting with others and opening yourself up to love.

In short, we have to be vulnerable. And while that does make it possible for rejection to occur, it also makes it possible for so many other beautiful human connections to occur.

As a research professor and bestselling author, Brené Brown found, the people who allow themselves to be vulnerable also believe “that what made them vulnerable made them beautiful.”

Flower Essences to Overcome Negative Emotions and Stress

Every spring, Mother Nature goes through an extraordinary transformation. And perhaps one of the most beautiful aspects of springtime is when all the flowers go into bloom.

These blossoms are certainly a sight for sore eyes after a long, cold winter, and they definitely help to lift the spirits. But flowers can also help to overcome negative emotions and stress in other ways, too.

One way is with flower essences  – a simple method that taps into some serious flower power. And what better time to introduce flower essences into your life than during springtime?

What are flower essences?

Flower essences are tinctures. They were developed by a British physician, Dr. Edward Bach in the early 20th century. He believed that disease was the result of negative emotions held within the body. So, he set out to identify the emotional healing power of flowers to help address and overcome this.

That lead to the development of his now-popular Bach Flower Remedies, a collection of 38 flower essences, which are aimed to address negative emotion.

How are flower essences made?

Flower essences are tinctures. The flower, or simply the petals themselves, are placed in a bowl of water. Everything is left to sit as the energy of the flower transfers to the water.

Then, the flowers or petals are removed from the water, and a preservative – usually brandy – is added to turn this flower-infused water into a tincture.

What’s the difference between essential oils and flower essences?

There are many natural remedies to increase wellness, and it’s easy to confuse flower essences with other popular remedies. So, it’s important to remember that flower essences and essential oils are very different things.

The biggest difference is that flower essences focus on the vibrational energy of the flower, whereas essential oils tap into the actual physical properties of the plant’s oil.

Another big difference is that essential oils are fragrant substances and one reason why they’re commonly used in aromatherapy. Flower essences, on the other hand, are fragrance-free.

How to use flower essences

Flower essences are used to help heal negative emotions and stress. But this isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach.

It’s easy to simply identify stress as just stress. And if we’re experiencing a negative emotion, we don’t tend to dive very deep to identify exactly what we’re feeling.

We usually stop at, “I’m stressed”, or with other vague statements. But there are many different types of negative emotions. And knowing which one you’re experiencing is key to using flower essences effectively.

In fact, each of the 38 flower essences is meant to address a specific negative emotion and type of stress.

So, the first and most important thing to do before taking a flower essence is to become self-aware. This allows you to dig deep and uncover what you’re feeling and why.

You can become more aware of your negative emotions by asking the following questions:

  • How am I reacting to this situation or thought?
  • What is causing me to react this way? (Fear, worry, anger, guilt, insecurity, etc.)

To help you identify with your emotions, it might help to journal or talk about it with a close and trusted friend, or coach.

Once you explore your emotional experience, you can look for the flower essence(s) that best support your current emotional need.

For example, Stephanie Gailing, a flower essence therapist, and astrologer shares that stress occurs because you lack confidence and don’t trust your abilities, leading to overall feelings of insecurity. In this case, a good match would likely be the flower essence of larch.

Similarly, if you’re impatient, rushed or a bit impulsive, the appropriately-named essence of impatiens can help.

Flower essences for specific stress and negative emotions

Perhaps one of the most challenging things about experiencing stress and negative emotions is the fear that no one understands you. But once you get to know flower essences, it will seem like they’re made with you in mind.

To give you an idea of just how specific they can be, here’s a brief introduction to flower essences that may support emotional well-being.

  • Elm: When you feel overwhelmed by your responsibilities
  • Beech: When you’re overly critical and judgmental and don’t tolerate others and yourself
  • Cherry Plum: When you’re afraid to lose control, and even experience suicidal ideation
  • Hornbeam: When you’re mentally fatigued and tend to procrastinate
  • White Chestnut: When you have too many thoughts running through your brain
  • Willow: When you’re feeling resentful and bitter

Even though it’s great that there are 38 specific flower essences – each for a specific type of negative emotion and stress – let’s face it. When you’re feeling down, it can be difficult to analyze your feelings objectively.

Therefore, if the stress and negative emotion are overwhelming, and you just want support and relief, look no further than a flower essence blend called “Rescue Remedy”.

It’s a mix of rock rose, impatiens, clematis, star-of-Bethlehem and cherry plum. This careful blend can support you in restoring emotional balance so that you can make a more specific flower essence choice later on – if you want.

How to take flower essences

When it comes to taking flower essences, you can either apply them directly to your skin or dilute them first.

If you chose to dilute them, add two drops of the flower essence into a glass of water and sip throughout the day. If you’re choosing multiple flower essences, you can mix up to seven or eight flower essences together in the same glass.

If you don’t finish the glass by the end of the day, you can place it in the refrigerator to save for the following day. Or, you can also make smaller dilutions to ensure that you finish them by the end of the day.

How many times should you sip it? Four to six times per day is usually a good place to start.

You can also take your flower essence straight, without any dilution, simply by dropping the tincture into your mouth. It may taste strongly of alcohol, but it works just as effectively as when you dilute the flower essence and take them that way.

If you have an alcohol sensitivity, it’s possible to find alcohol-free flower essences, so you can tap into some gentle flower power without any discomfort.

Flower essences are a wonderful way to invite Mother Nature’s healing touch into your daily life. They’re a gentle and safe way to address negativity and stress and to support emotional wellbeing.

How to Find and Understand your Moon Sign

Most of us are familiar with the 12 sun signs. They’re so popular that even people who aren’t really invested in astrology know their signs. What’s more, we identify ourselves with these zodiac signs, saying things like, “I’m an Aries” or “Pisces” or whatever your sign is. But your personality is so much more complex than that, and so is astrology.

The difference between sun signs and moon signs

Sun signs are important and offer a lot of insight into your personality. However, these 12 signs are a simplified approach to astrology. That’s because they only focus on the position of the sun within the 12 zodiac signs when you were born.

But at the time of your birth, an entire universe was dancing, including the waxing and waning moon. And just as the moon influences your day-to-day life depending on its position in the sky, so, too does the moon’s position impact you on the day you were born.

And that’s where moon signs come in. These signs show the position of the moon within the 12 zodiacs at the time of your birth.

How to figure out your moon sign

It’s easy to determine your sun sign. All you need is the date and month of your birthday.

But the moon travels more quickly through the zodiac, spending two to three days in each sign before moving on to the next. So, in order to figure out your moon sign, you need to know the date, time and location of your birth.

These specifics will help you pinpoint which zodiac sign the moon was in when you were born.

What moon signs are all about

The sun sign reveals your conscious self, along with your overall personality, which you and everyone else can pretty much observe without much trouble.

As you know, a sun sign can extend for weeks. Take Aries, for example. It runs from March 21st to April 19th. And everyone born between these two dates can say, “I’m an Aries.”

However, while the sun rests in Aries during that month-long period, the moon quietly moves through each of the 12 zodiac signs.

That’s why you’ve probably noticed that even though many people all share the same sun sign and similar personality traits, they’re also all incredibly different, too.

That’s because each person has their own unique moon sign, and that moon sign plays a big role in who they are.

The moon sign represents your deeper self, your emotions, and your subconscious inner workings. Whereas the sun sign illuminates the surface, the moon sign reveals depths.

Why it’s important to know your moon sign

Even if moon signs aren’t as popular as sun signs, they’re equally important. Together, these two signs help to explain and shed light on your entire person.

For example, you may have known your sun sign for a long time. And while it’s consistent with much of your personality, it doesn’t explain everything. And there may be times when you feel in conflict and at odds with yourself.

This can be due to the tug-of-war occurring between the sun and moon signs within you. But if you don’t know what your moon sign is, you may not be able to resolve these inner battles.

That’s why knowing both your sun sign and your moon sign help you know yourself better, love yourself better and be more understanding and patient with yourself.

Moon signs can explain why you struggle in some areas, and why you thrive in others. In the end, both the sun and moon illuminate different aspects of your personality. So, it’s helpful to know and understand your moon sign.

To get you started, here’s a brief overview of each of the 12 moon signs.

Aries Moon

Ruled by Mars, this moon can be fiery, short-tempered, and with an energy that can be impatient, demanding, determined, aggressive, and strong-minded. The Aries Moon likes autonomy and enjoys the action required to solve problems.

Taurus Moon

Ruled by Venus, this moon is sensitive and caring, yet needs stability, sometimes in the form of returned love, affection and comfort. The Taurus Moon can also be taken advantage of, or become needy and possessive.

Gemini Moon

Ruled by Mercury, the Gemini Moon likes to be stimulated, and when bored, takes a mischievous turn. To avoid this, you need lots of communication and new ideas to keep you challenged and engaged.

Cancer Moon

Ruled by the Moon, the Cancer Moon is very sensitive, emotional and instinctual. To feel good, these people need to be nurtured and reassured, as they tend to fear abandonment. Easily hurt, the Cancer Moon can easily close themselves up and shut out hurtful people.

Leo Moon

Ruled by the Sun, the Leo Moon is strong, confident and has a leader’s stamina. Just as the sun is the center of our solar system, Leo Moons like to be at the center of attention, too. Glamour, excitement and the rush of chasing and hunting is what Leo Moons thrive on.

Virgo Moon

Ruled by Mercury, Virgo Moons are the most intellectual characters within the 12 moon signs. Their analytical, organized nature can make them highly critical – especially of themselves. However, they thrive when they feel like they’re helping and serving others.

Libra Moon

Ruled by Venus, Libra Moons place a lot of value on love and beauty. They avoid conflict, whenever possible, and strive to keep their environments peaceful and aesthetically pleasing.

Scorpio Moon

Ruled by Pluto, Scorpio Moons are intense individuals who prefer privacy. When they do open up, they desire honest communications. A bond formed with a Scorpio Moon is likely to be long-lasting.

Sagittarius Moon

Ruled by Jupiter, the Sagittarius Moon is influenced by Jupiter’s wisdom and expansion. Therefore, adventure, knowledge and an interest in a variety of belief systems motivate these individuals. This explains why they enjoy traveling and interacting with open-minded people, like themselves.

Capricorn Moon

Ruled by Saturn, these moons tend to be realistic and no-nonsense individuals. It’s important for these people to decompress and recharge. And a tendency to be emotionally distant and melancholy is common for the Capricorn Moon.

Aquarius Moon

Ruled by Uranus, the Aquarius Moon is marked with a (sometimes rebellious) independent streak. But these secure individuals are also innovative and can be trailblazers who enjoy the collaborative process.

Pisces Moon

Ruled by Neptune, the Pisces Moon is both deeply sensitive and empathetic. Art and spirituality are very important to these individuals. And a need for both creativity and quiet meditation helps these individuals shine.

These brief explanations are by no means complete, but they offer insight into not only the moon sign but your inner workings and emotional energy.

When you know your moon sign, you can develop a greater understanding of yourself, and also be more loving and compassionate toward yourself.

So, what’s your moon sign? Do you think it helps you understand yourself better?

How to Gently Kick Start your Energetic Healing

Energy surrounds us. In fact, everything – including you and I – is a manifestation of energy. And if you’re not careful, your energy can get stuck and stop flowing freely. When this happens, emotional and physical problems can show up in life.

It’s safe to say that most of us have blocked energy in our bodies, making energetic healing necessary if we want to experience greater peace and wholeness. To get you started, here are some healing practices to consider. And as always, if something resonates with you, pursue that path. Your curiosity often leads the way to exactly what you need.

  1. EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique

When trying to manifest all the right things into life, we often skip an all-important step. You see, without first clearing away limiting beliefs and past pain, it’s difficult to manifest loving, positive experiences.

That’s why EFT is an incredibly simple and extremely powerful practice. By tapping on specific meridian points while saying positive affirmations, you can release pain and heal from past trauma so that you can truly be open to better experiences.

  1. Reiki

The word “Reiki” comes from two Japanese words. “Rei” translates to “Higher Power” and “Ki” means “life force energy.” So, Reiki describes a higher power life force energy. But what does that actually mean?

Sometimes, we just need help accessing the natural flow of energy that surrounds us, and that’s where a Reiki practitioner comes in. A Reiki practitioner serves as a channel of the universal life force and passes this energy on to your entire person – body, mind, and spirit.

This gentle practice is like a breath of fresh air and can help your body kick start its own natural healing abilities.

  1. Connect to the universal flow of energy

A Reiki session can help you gain access to the Universe’s powerful energy. But you can also do this on your own, simply by setting the intention to connect and be open to the energy that sustains us all.

You can do this by standing or sitting quietly, imagine your buttocks or feet connected to the power supply of Mother Earth and her never-ending support. Envision this energy flowing freely to you. See yourself grounded and connected. Because you truly are!

  1. Heal your root chakra

The root chakra is located at the base of the spine, and it’s associated with confidence and survival. When the root chakra is blocked or stuck, it’s difficult for energy to flow up to the higher chakras. What’s more, a blocked root chakra can lead to feelings of insecurity, fear, restlessness, and fatigue. And when fear governs your actions, it’s very difficult to live freely, openly and in good health.

You can heal your root chakra by doing any or all of the following practices:

  • Meditate on the root chakra mantra, Lam.
  • Surrounded yourself with Mother Nature. And if you can’t make it to the park or forest, take conscious steps as you walk around your home, or to and from work. Plant each foot firmly on the ground and feel yourself taking up space and being welcomed by the world.
  • Strengthen and open your root chakra by imagining a glowing red orb at the base of the spine, and know that you are supported, loved and important.
  1. Tap into the power of the New Moon

Each month, the new moon is bursting with potent energy and it can actually supercharge whatever intentions you bring to your new moon ritual. That’s because there’s a parallel between your life and the moon’s cycle.

The new moon is an empty sphere, ready to be colored in with the brightness of the coming full moon. And it can help you clear the slate in your own life, and create an open, fertile space where you plant new intentions and help them flourish.

  1. Begin a yoga practice

Stress and worry can make us tighten up and close off our physical bodies. But this blocks the flow of energy and can actually increase feelings of powerlessness and panic. But when you practice yoga, you can become actively aware of the energetic life force running through your body.

By focusing on your posture and your breath, you can release energy to move more freely – just as it should. The following 5 yoga postures are available to beginners and advanced yogi’s alike:

  • Forward Fold: to soothe the nervous system
  • Warrior 2: When you hold your arms out right and left, think of energy shooting from one end to the other. It only can when you allow it to!
  • Cat-Cow: When kneeling on hands and knees, remember to keep your neck relaxed and straight to encourage an easy flow of energy from the crown of your head to your tailbone.
  • Mountain pose: When standing with feet planted firmly on the ground, think of drawing energy up from the ground to support you and your every breath.
  • No matter what posture you do, also bring your breath – it brings life to every posture, and it helps to release and break down energetic blocks.

You can kickstart your energetic healing just as you are today. And as you can see, simple practices can make huge impacts on your healing journey.

Feeling stuck and indecisive? 11 tips to get moving again

When we’re feeling stuck and indecisive, we don’t know where to go or what to do. And in the end, we don’t do very much. Strangely enough, this inaction is very draining and takes up a lot of our mental energy. So, the next time you want to get un-stuck, follow these 11 tips and get clear again.

  1. Listen to your feelings

Neurologist and author, Antonio Damasio, has discovered that when the area of the brain, which processes emotions, is damaged, we lose our ability to make decisions. That’s how important our emotions are when forming decisions! So, when you’re not sure which way to turn, pay attention to your emotions. Often, they point us in the right direction.

And if you can’t figure out what your emotions are telling you, make a decision and then observe how you feel. Feelings don’t lie!

  1. Just start

Sometimes, we have a hard time getting started because we think we don’t have anything to work with. If that’s the case, give yourself something to work with – and it can be anything! A rough draft, an outline, or even scribbles on a napkin.

  1. Forgive yourself and be compassionate

You can be your own worst enemy and hold yourself back more than anyone or anything else. This can lead to self-sabotage and shame. Instead, try to be very gentle and compassionate and forgive yourself. It’s easier to move forward when you feel loved – even by yourself.

  1. Believe in yourself

Internationally-acclaimed yoga teacher, Kathryn Budig, has a strong devotion to Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt. You can follow Budig’s example by incorporating her prayer into your daily mantra: “Artemis, huntress of the moon, make my aim true.”

This practice could strengthen your self-belief, self-confidence and inner resolve.

  1. Done is better than perfect

Sometimes, our need for perfection prevents us from moving forward. But the truth is, perfection isn’t possible, so try not to get too hooked up on it. In fact, done is better than perfect. So, be proud of what you finish, even if it’s not “perfect” because guess what? It would never have been anyways!

  1. Stop comparing

Do you think other people are better, smarter, prettier, more worthy and more eligible than you are? If so, you won’t give your dreams the energy and focus they need to come to fruition.

What’s worse, you won’t reach for your dreams anymore. So, stop comparing yourself. This might mean taking a social media break. It might also mean cultivating a gratitude practice. Both of these things can help clear your mind and give you more mental space.

  1. Go where you’re curious

It’s easy to get stuck when we feel that we “should” be doing something. But why not step away from this sense of obligation and move toward pleasure instead? Why not migrate to where you’re curious? The way out of indecisiveness can sometimes be found in our own curiosity.

  1. Ask the universe for a sign

Why struggle alone? The universe is loving and generous, and it’s at your disposal. You just have to ask for help. Pam Grout shares in her book, E-Squared, that the famous Bible verse, “Ask, and you will receive. Seek, and you will find,” isn’t a timid and uncertain request.

Instead, it’s how you claim what’s rightfully yours. So, don’t be afraid to tap into the abundant universe.

  1. Set the intention to find clarity

When you’re lost in the woods, you might not know where to go. But one thing’s for sure: you want to get out! When you’re stuck and indecisive, it’s hard to know what you want, but at least you know that you want clarity.

So, every day, set an intention to be open and receptive to answers and inspiration, no matter what form they take. Doing this can make you feel better without necessarily having a clear direction.

  1. Give yourself positive reinforcement

It’s hard to build momentum – especially if you’ve been stuck for a long time. So, whenever you make even a little progress, celebrate! You can celebrate by praising yourself, by indulging in a nice treat, or by taking a little break. When your brain is rewarded, it will be more inclined to get back to work when you’re ready.

  1. Go somewhere new

Our minds can get stuck in a rut when we’re doing the same thing over and over again. A great way to shake things up is to go somewhere new. Take a new route on your commute. Visit a different part of town. Go away on the weekend. Relocate for as long or for as little as you want. By doing so, you help your brain create new neural pathways. These new pathways make it easier for you to develop fresh ideas and become more creative.
